Steelers Lineman Mike Adams Stabbed in Stomach During Apparent Robbery Attempt


Mike Adams, David DeCastroThe Steelers faced a scare on Saturday morning when second-year offensive tackle Mike Adams was stabbed in the stomach during a robbery attempt.

The organization announced the news via Twitter. Adams should make a full recovery after having surgery on Saturday morning, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network. No major organs were punctured.

Adams’ agent told Kinkhabwala that three men tried to steal the 6-foot-7, 323-pounder’s truck in Pittsburgh’s south side. Adams is expected to be out six to eight weeks and will be available by training camp.

Adams started six games for Pittsburgh in 2012. He’s expected to be the team’s starting right tackle in 2013.

The Adams stabbing accentuates a long list of troubles that have followed the Steelers’ 2012 draft class. First-rounder David DeCastro and third-round linebacker Sean Spence both blew out their knees during last year’s training camp. DeCastro returned midway through the season. Alameda Ta’amu was  arrested in October for allegedly evading police after driving intoxicated. Fifth-round running back Chris Rainey was waived in January after being charged with battery against his ex-girlfriend.
